Netatmo Rain

John-Inge Korsvik 2 years ago in Things & Capabilities / Non-"Works With SmartThings" devices • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 3

I'm just setting up and have added my Netatmo system including rain gauge to Smartthings.

All measurements I get correct from the base station and outdoor module in the SmartThings App and AT.


From the rain sensor, not so much.  I get a battery reading, but nothing on rain.

The app displays all correct, Battery, Rain, sumHours, SumDay, units and last update.,

Hi John,


ActionTiles is only compatible with official SmartThings "Capability APIs" which are published in the Developer Docs. (We're not compatible with all of them yet, but we add more of them from time to time...).



Netatmo is not a certified "Works With SmartThings"™ Device. It is making up it's own ad hoc custom Attributes.


There is no Capability "Rain", "sumHours", "sumDay", etc...


We know that a lot of devices use Custom Attributes and Commands; but ActionTiles doesn't have a way of handling these. We're keeping watch on the issue, though.


Thanks,

...Terry.

The best way to get this accelerated? ...

The SmartThings power-user / developer Community needs to encourage SmartThings to create more official Capability Definitions to accommodate the various device functions that are currently thrown into Device Type Handlers on an ad hoc and non-standardized basis. The Capability model is excellent; but mostly stagnant.

It's the same with the wind sensor. It appears with readings in Smartthings but not Actiontiles. It would be great if there was a way to get these integrated.
